I went to a reclaimed hardware place and just picked up a bunch of assorted materials to test on.
I was thinking these marble tiles might make nice nameplates.
Here’s my first experiment.
Settings: full Power, full speed, 225 lines, 3 passes. Worked even with 1 pass, but did not go too deep, so I just kept going.
Would love to make it look beveled but I’d have to spend a little extra time making a gradient around the lines of the letters; so probably won’t get to that.
